Call for papers

 The 9th Speech Prosody Conference will be held from 13 to 16 June 2018 at Collegium Iuridicum Novum, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland.

The conference theme will be "Challenges and new prospects on prosody: research and technology", but we invite papers addressing any aspect of the science and technology of prosody.

Speech Prosody, the biennial meeting of the Speech Prosody Special Interest Group (SProSIG) of the International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), is the only recurring international conference focused on prosody as an organizing principle for the social, psychological, linguistic, clinical phonetics and technological aspects of spoken language. Past conferences have been attended by 300-400 researchers including experts representing a range of disciplines including linguistics, acoustics, speech technology, cognitive science, neuroscience, speech therapy, audiology and hearing science, language teaching, computer science, electrical engineering and forensic science.
